effective communication among health care professionals, and improve the
patient experience. By actively seeking out and adopting these tools, nurses
can greatly enhance the quality and safety of care that they provide.

tools that increase the ability of nurses to provide safe, effective care.

Consider how your identified technology tool might impact
nursing practice if it were more widely used. What are some barriers preventing
increased usage? How could wider implementation be facilitated?
